Dear Original Poster:
I am sorry that the talented performer in the mobility device did not allow you to be "transported to another time and place, an Arabian marketplace hundreds of years ago..."
Did the Disney story of Aladdin take place hundreds of years ago? In the last century? a decade ago? Who is to say...
The Genii is wearing a bald cap and (gasp!) make-up. The "magic carpet" is held up (most of the time) by cables. The actors' costumes are attached with zippers and velcro. Most wear wigs. The lighting is all artificial. The great sound is brought to you by microphones on the actors, amplified through speakers; the music is recorded. Need I go on?
Peter Pan was played by a middle-aged woman, yes a woman, on Broadway for years (i'm refering to Mary Martin of course; Cathy would kill me if she heard me refer to her as 'middle-aged"... she still has better abs than anyone i know!)
The young lady's mode of transportation only jarred me for a moment before I thought "how lovely!". However, I had the opportunity once to see several young visitors - also in mobility devices - watch wide-eyed as this talented performer transported them to another time and place: an age when people were judged by their talents and attributes, rather than their perceived limitations.
My father used to tell us about how Tinkerbell was played (in the 60's) by a woman in a full lime green body cast; she flew through the air nightly from the top of the Matterhorn to the backstage area during the summer fireworks.
